A loan of $500 helped to purchase watermelons.


Jorge Adalberto's story

Jorge lives with his children and his wife. He makes his living selling watermelons. He works together with his children to sell the fruit. He purchases the watermelons from the producers. He invests with the farmers who make their livings growing the crop for sale. Jorge has had his business for two years.

Jorge is requesting the loan to be able to purchase the entire watermelon production from his suppliers. This will allow him to continue selling and to maintain his business. The farmers give him a better price when they can sell him their entire crop. This loan will help him to have the financial resources that he does not currently possess.

Jorge's objective is to work with his family to obtain the income they need to cover their financial needs.
